We know you are a GO-GETTER.
If you are an adventure seeking sun-lover or just enjoy getting outside and being in Nature Vitamin C should be a key part of your skincare routine to help prevent damage and premature aging. At Peak Scents, we believe that beauty is ageless and that you can keep the adventure going no matter what age you are which is why our founder created Peak Scents over 27 years ago when she was a rafting guide in The Grand Canyon. Now, let’s talk about our favorite GLOW-GETTER, Vitamin C.
First, What can’t Vitamin C do? It’s basically the superwoman of natural skincare!
It brightens and lightens your skin, helps to heal damage, stimulates collagen production, and even scavenges free radicals to prevent the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. The best news is that our products are made with the gentlest and most effective form of vitamin C -Ascorbyl-palmitate which is more stable and less irritating to the skin and is well suited for sensitive skin.
Here’s how to start your GLOW UP with Vitamin C Serum:
We recommend using our Vitamin C Solution or Hyaluronic + C Serum after cleansing, exfoliating, masking, and/or toning — but always before moisturizing. All you have to do is apply a couple pumps of serum to clean fingers, and gently press the product evenly over damp skin. Allow to absorb for 90 seconds, before following up with a moisturizer to lock in the goodness of your serum, and bolster your skin’s moisture barrier.
Here’s how this GLOW-GETTER works as an OVERACHIEVER for your appearance:
Vitamin C serums can brighten, tighten, and restore your skin — whether it’s used during the daytime or at night however be sure to always apply sunscreen after using C during the day. At night your skin undergoes its natural repair process while you're asleep so it’s a good idea to apply a C-Serum before you go to bed at night.
Helps With Acne and Acne Scarring
Vitamin C is anti-inflammatory, which means a vitamin C serum can both help clear up acne and reduce the redness associated with it—as well as improve skin texture and tone. When used after an exfoliant, it can help clear up acne-scars as well.
Protects against sun damage
Sun damage is caused by molecules called free radicals. Vitamin C is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants protect healthy skin cells by “giving” these free radicals an electron, rendering them harmless.
Promotes collagen production
Vitamin C is well known for boosting collagen production which in turn decreases sagging skin and fine lines and wrinkles..
It inhibits melanin production in the skin, which helps to lighten hyperpigmentation and brown spots, even out skin tone, and enhance skin radiance.
